I can understand that! Took me a bit to figure out the ones for the GTV.

These are some of the link parts and a pair of arms ready to bend. These are for one of my rigs and still need to be bent slightly to create a tiny bit of offset. The parts I'm having a touch time getting is the 2 3/8" 6-10" solid body turn buckles. I can find smaller ones and longer ones but nobody local has the correct length..

That's a problem with fabbing things. Folks don't have what you want.

Awesome looking 3-point. Gonna have to get a 3-point on the Ford one of these days, but I know where to get it now! Thanks, Keith.

I have a 75 open side 145 that I'm bringing back to Canada from Mass next week. I have a 36 inch tiller for it and I was just given the 3 point lift arms and turn buckles tonight. the tractor has a rear PTO already on it. How much is the upper assembly kit with the brackets and lift link? I'd love to pick one up in the late spring/summer.

I need to look around, but I may have an "original" style kicking around someplace ? I know I don't have the rocker shaft , but might be able to build one up pretty easy. Take some pics of the back of your tractor!! You may only need the rocker and a few bushings.

Quick question, does your newer improved style with the wider lift points work with the original Ford lower arms?  I'll post a pick later of the back of the tractor.

with a little modifiying. But you will need different vertical links because the bottom"L" is way too long after modification. Also with out my brackets you can't use the wider rocker shaft. The pto side has been severely modified to accomadate this feature.

Here is what is currently on the tractor. I also have, not on, the factory lower arms and the middle adjustable link. I gave vertical links as well but I think I'll make my own. I have the material here.

 Looks like your missing most of the rocker assembly ? All I see is the pto side . Did you get the blower/bagger that goes with the pulley on the pto shaft ?

 

 As for the 3 point hitch? you will need basically 95% of the upper assembly .

 The factory setup for these is very difficult to find ? This is puzzling? You have all the other parts but no rocker shaft goodies ??

I did get the bagger assembly and it's complete as far as I know. I'd love to find a manual for it though. So I could figure it out. The 3 point hitch stuff came from a neighbor who bought them from my uncle in the 80's with an LGT that he had. When the tractor was sold, buddy had left the rocker assembly on it but he had taken the arms off. He had rigged up a saw gear on it for firewood and didn't need the arms. I got the arms and stuff for nothing so I grabbed them. I have a 36 inch tiller as well. I'd like to get the rocker assembly when I can but I'm not in a panic for it.
